Store Manager Matt said: “It was lovely to meet our new customers at the Crown Street store.

“The new store opened with social distancing guidelines in place to ensure the health and safety of our customers and colleagues. We would like to thank customers for their patience and support in adhering to these safety measures.”

To celebrate the store opening, Aldi Crown Street is donating groceries to local foodbanks, National Food Service Community Meals and Pollokshields Development Agency Covid-19 Support, which provide the most vulnerable in the community with access to food supplies.

It is hoped that these donations will help families in the local area who are in need of some extra support in the current climate.

The new store is open Monday to Saturday, 8am-10pm; and Sunday, 9am-8pm.
